    The photos in this instructable are almost too blurry to be useful. Can you provide clearer ones?

    Good instructable. This can be done with many mice. I've tried this with my Logitech Trackman Wheel trackball and it works fairly well. The only bad part about it is that the wheel becomes a little TOO easy to move (at least in my opinion). It might be a possible to increase the physical resistance between the wheel axle and the mouse to alleviate that.

    just depends on how hard the little wire is pressing up against the track wheel, i assume if you bend it a little it could fit your prefrence

    I cannot get my mouse to scroll AT ALL!  I have a Windows XP.  What do I adjust on my computer to allow me to scroll again?

    That's cool. I really hate my mouse's click. It is really loud. I'm not going to try it cuz I don't have a replacement, but once I do I'll try it. Now if I can just stop the keyboard keys from making noise.
